[Artificial Intelligence? It’s just software, that’s all it is! I’m amazed at how the myth of artificial intelligence has been blindly accepted by pretty much everyone but it’s been with us ever since the industrial revolution. We used to call it Machine Learning. What’s made the REAL difference is the power of modern computing, which is now able to do in ‘real time’ something that simply wasn’t possible with early computers; carry out billions of computations ‘on the fly’, thus creating the appearence of intelligence when in fact, it’s just software.

A series of trials funded by the EU to the tune of €4.5 million ended this summer, without most people ever even having heard about them. At three points on the EU’s external border, a new form of border protection using lie-detecting artificial intelligence has been tested. The European Commission is being sued for allowing the company behind the trials to keep its methods and results away from public scrutiny.
